|Brian Grant, Irish Dancer and Musician, Art Waves #69|
When Art Waves host, Bernadette Rule, heard her dentist say he had danced and played with the Chieftains, the Fureys and other great Irish bands, it was a good thing her mouth was already open wide! She immediately snagged said dentist, Brian Grant, with his own dental floss and made him promise to come and help Art Waves celebrate St. Patrick's Day. And celebrate he did, with wonderful stories of Irish dancing and music.

|Ruth Sutherland, Art Waves #105|
Who better to help us celebrate Robbie Burns Day than harper and Celtic singer Ruth Sutherland? Though she was fully prepared to play live for us, the weather proved a trifle cold for her harp. (It was more like Robbie Brrrrrs Day!) So she brought in her award-winning CDs instead, but she did start us off with a live a cappella rendition of MacCrimmon's Lament. So rrroll up your r's and your argyle socks and let the beautiful words and music of Ruth Sutherland warm you right through.
